It’s no coincidence that both the rise in obesity and the rise of eating outside food have shot up in recent decades. In a system where our food passes through so many hands, there’s little control over what we are feeding our families. Cooking at home is empowering. You can be sure of the exact ingredients that go into your meals. Since outside food has different priorities than your home kitchen (they want to make something irresistibly tasty before considering how healthy it is, most of the time), you can reclaim a pretty significant part of your health by being in control of your food hands-on.
With Rotimatic, our endeavour is to ensure you don’t have to choose between health and convenience.
Supermarket-unhealthy-food
Convenience doesn’t have to mean a compromise on quality. We have outsourced our food preparation to supermarkets and with that comes the side effect of preservatives. The surest way to a healthy meal is to know every ingredient that goes into it. By ensuring you include whole wheat rotis in your daily diet, you can be sure of no hydrogenated fats, no preservatives, no artificial sweeteners, no artificial flavors or colors. Store bought, mass produced food is not the choice of any health-conscious family.

Homemade rotis come with a host of health benefits:

Rotis are made with whole grains

If you make roti or chapati with whole wheat flour (recommended with your Rotimatic), it can be really healthy for the body. Whole grains are filled with fibres and are nutritious. They are rich in carbs, soluble fibre and proteins. This helps boost your body energy, increase blood circulation and keeps you full.

Rotis are nutritious and low on calories

This whole grain is a rich source of vitamin (B1, B2, B3, B6, B9), iron, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium etc so you should not avoid roti in your diet. Replacing roti with bread and wraps can deplete your health in the long term.

Rotis have a low Glycemic index

Carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables and grains are not metabolized into glucose at the same rate. Some are quickly digested, causing spikes in blood glucose and insulin release, while others are broken down more slowly, which impacts blood sugar and insulin levels to a much lesser degree. The glycemic index is a comparative measure of how quickly a carbohydrate is reduced into glucose. Whole wheat rotis have a Glycemic index lower than both white bread and white rice.
Rotis-healthy

Rotis are easy to digest

As rotis are made with whole grains, it is very easy to digest them. They dissolve easily and passes out into the intestines.

Rotis are fresh

As roti dough is kneaded few minutes before roasting, it is very fresh and healthy for the body. Other breads are fermented and they can be filled with fats and calories. Moreover, flour of freshly made rotis is not bleached with chemicals to last longer. So, it protects your body from, cardiovascular diseases and obesity.

Roti influences vata and pitta doshas

According to Ayurveda experts, roti helps balance the vata (controls all movement in the body, including breathing, digestion, and nerve impulses from the brain ) and pitta (controls digestion, body metabolism and energy production) dosha.

While most of us often pair rotis with dal and sabzi (all time comfort food!), the humble roti is more versatile than we can imagine. From a platter of kebabs to a healthy fruity dessert, rotis are perfect accompaniment to many dishes.

One fine afternoon, the Rotimatic team got together with some foodies in San Francisco to have fun with rotis. We cooked up a perfect light meal of healthy appetizers and dips to compliment the Rotimatic Rotis.
Since the guests were not familiar with the traditional roti-making process, Pranoti (the co-founder and CTO of Zimplistic) gave them a quick preview of what it takes! The guests took a stab at it as well and sure enough opted to work with Rotimatic rotis instead. Guests were divided into small teams to prepare a variety of internationally inspired tapas recipes.  Once the cooking was finished, everyone shared dishes with each other cocktail party style.

Savouries included:
– Chicken Tikka Kebabs with Tamarind Chutney
– Roti “Pizzas” with Seasonal Toppings
– Roasted Lamb Skewers with Pistachio, Mint, and Yogurt
– Lentil Keema made with Indian Spice and Cilantro Chutney
– Paneer and Broccoli Masala with Fresh Curry Leaves
